EuropeScotland Family Hike Adventure and Harry Potter

Scotland Highland Family Travel Adventure

Scotland offers families fantastic hiking with moderate treks that are ideal for young kids like our Sarah, Luke, and Peter. Michael scoped out a "Harry Potter" - inspired romp, a scenic path that encircled a viaduct and went up through the hills. The scenic path led up through the hills and lakes were nestled in the distant mountains. We trekked up and down through calf-high grass, with the viaduct in and out of view, until we finally navigated just below it.

Because the ground was also quite boggy, the five of us emerged wet and muddy and we
realized that our hiking gear was woefully inadequate. British hikers equipped with wellies (waterproof boots) and ski-like walking poles merrily passed by us by as we slogged along the route. We took plenty of photos of the viaduct and reenacted the scene from "Harry Potter".   

On the way back to the car park we came across a farmer who gleefully recounted the “Harry Potter” film crew filming the characters Harry and Ron flying a small automobile over the viaduct around which we had hiked that afternoon. The farmer also pointed out that the film’s special effects team had turned his barn into a rather large rhododendron bush.
